A 24-year-old woman has come forth and accused Chris Brown of rape.
The French model (who can’t be named for legal reasons) claimed that the incident took place in Mandarin Oriental hotel in Paris on 15th January 2019. Besides Brown, the victim alleged that 2 other men were also involved.
In speaking to French magazine Closer, the aforementioned woman recount her version of how she was allegedly raped by Brown, his bodyguard and a family friend a week ago. They had apparently met through a mutual friend who works at the Crystal Lounge nightclub on the Champs Elysee.
“This friend asked me what I was doing the next day, and if I would like to meet Chris Brown. I said yes and the next day, on Tuesday, I had an appointment at 11:30pm at the Mandarin Oriental hotel to meet the rapper. At the reception of the hotel, I found myself with friends of his and other girls. We went up to his suite to pick him up and we all went to a nightclub called ‘The Quay’,” she recalled.
“Everything was going well. Around 4am, they decided to go back to the hotel. I wanted to go home, but someone in Chris Brown’s entourage took me by the arm and said: ‘Come on, we’ll have a good evening’. Leaving the nightclub, there were two Mercedes vans that were full up. So I said, ‘There’s no place, I’m going home.’ Then I was told, ‘No, come on!’. And I was put in Chris Brown’s car with another girl’,” she continued.
The group was brought to the singer’s room in Mandarin Oriental. “Before entering the suite, the bodyguard took all our cell phones. It didn’t seem surprising given the artist’s notoriety and I didn’t worry. Once in the suite, we were offered drinks. There was cocaine and cannabis. There were about 15 girls, friends of Chris Brown. The music was loud, people were coming in and out … It was a bit chaotic,” the model said.
“At one point, I went to the bathroom. Chris Brown followed me and took me by the right arm. He made me enter a sort of dressing room. He closed the door,” she explained before revealing that the rape followed. “It lasted 25 to 30 minutes. It’s still too difficult for me to explain in detail what he did, but it was brutal and violent.” The abuse continued with 2 more men.
Not long after she filed a police report, Brown and the 2 men were arrested earlier this week. They were released without charge after being questioned for 24 hours. The R&B crooner took to Instagram to post a photo that reads “This Bitch Lyin'” in all caps.
“I wanna make it perfectly clear…..,” Brown elaborated in the caption, “This is false and a whole lot of cap (sic)! … For my daughter and my family this is so disrespectful and is against my character and morals!!!!!”’
Brown already has a number of previous, high-profile convictions for violence.
